Omlet Newsletter – Friday, 8th October 2010

You haven’t heard from us in a while but that’s because we’ve been busy making the newsletter even better than before. The first cool change is that we’re saving you a click, because the newsletter us now right before your eyes. Secondly, we’ve got a great new feature called Tested by Barbara that we know you will find useful. And even more eggcitingly you can eggspect to see a brand new design next week too! Let us know what you think and if you have any photos, jokes, stories or recipes that you would like us to feature, please send to stephanie@omlet.co.uk. Enjoy!

Shop Opening

First for some very eggciting news straight from Omlet HQ. We first started selling the Eglu in 2004 and our range of products, large and small, has been eggspanding year on year ever since. Although our website is great for ordering Eglus, chickens and other bits and bobs, we know that lots of you would prefer to see our products in the flesh before buying. So, we thought it was about time to try something new…we are venturing into the unknown and opening our very first shop!

Opening at weekends, the Omlet shop will give you the opportunity to see our eggstraordinary range of products like never before. Peek into a Beehaus, flick through a book, touch an egg cosy, or even stroke a chicken, and after you’ve had a good old mooch around you can pop into the garden centre next door and enjoy a cup of coffee.

So why not pop along for the grand unveiling this weekend? You will find us in the picturesque village of Wardington, Oxfordshire, alongside Barn Farm Plants. Click here to find us! We will be there Saturday 9am – 5pm and Sunday 10am – 4pm. We’d love to see you!

British Egg Week

All was calm at Omlet HQ on Tuesday morning. It was just another day at the office…for the first couple of hours. When the clock ticked to 10:30am something strange happened. Orders started flooding through so quickly that we couldn’t keep up. Orders for a a few items in particular. Orders for Spiral Egg Racks, Fried Egg Earrings and Flip Egg Spatulas…and loads of them. But what was the reason for the sudden rush in eggcessories? It was then that we realised our products had just made an appearance on ITV’s This Morning. In light of British Egg Week Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield were joined by Edwina Currie to show off a range of egg gadgets. And despite Edwina’s previous fiasco with eggs, she embraced the eggsperience and wore the earrings with pride.

If you missed the feature you can catch it again by clicking here. And why not visit the British Egg Week website for some great recipes and competitions.

Grand Designs

This weekend Grand Designs Live will be taking to the stage again, at the NEC, Birmingham. Running from today until Sunday, the UK’s number one home show is brilliant for anyone that’s interested in home and garden, gifts and gadgets and new technology. Whether it’s some early christmas pressies you’re after or a whole new load of furnishings for your home, this is the show to visit. Potter around the array of stands, nosy through eco show homes, watch live cooking demos and finish with some tasty grub at the Grand Gardens Cafe (or, if you’re feeling flash, the Grand Restaurant by John Burton-Race).

We will be on stand G130, in in Grand Gardens section. Come and say hello, see a demo of the Eglu and Beehaus, and browse our selection of gifts and accessories. It opens at 10am each day and you can book tickets online now. See you there!

Competition

Fancy bagging yourself a posh meal for two at one of the country’s top restaurants? Who wouldn’t!? Enter this month’s eggstra special competition and you and a friend will be treated to a three course lunch and a glass of bubbly at one of the 10 in 8 Fine Dining Group restaurants. Choose to dine at the beautiful Paris House in Bedfordshire, L’Ortolan in Berkshire, or La Becasse in Shropshire, or if you can wait until January you could also choose to try their latest addition, The New Angel in Dartmouth.

Run by Alan Murchison, michelin starred chef and star of BBC’s Great British Menu, you can be sure to enjoy some eggsquisite food wherever
you choose.

So now that we’ve got your tastebuds tingling we can reveal the competition. Some find it easy, some find it frustrating, but one thing’s for sure, it always proves popular…yes, it’s that good old Spot the Difference! Simply look at the two photos of Paris House and find the 10 differences, then send your answers, written or circled, to stephanie@omlet.co.uk by Sunday 24th October. Good luck!
